    Muscovy ducks. They love flies and I have a LOT of flies cuz of how I dispose of the feeder "dregs". (and the horse farm out back) I may get a couple anyway....but space is so limited, I'm not sure how things would go with more birds in the same amount of space.

    As much as I would love to deliver a fuzzy butt to his office, I am afraid I would be stopped and harrassed by his police/security posse...

    Well I'm ready to fire up the incubator again.

    Traded most of the others for Horse Manure. It was worth it to me to not have to shovel and fill bags. Thanks to Mderby and her nice DH. I realize there are those who may think "horse manure"? That's not a good trade, but it is to me. Last time I got some I drove a long ways. It was bagged and I did get it cheap.

    I do have a "friend" who has horses nearby but every time I ask I get excuses.

    Don't worry TOB I kept all the Dels.

    Take care,

    Rancher

    Rancher, a couple of things...

    Firstly, I have a horse who is stabled with my friend's 2 horses. They crank out A LOT of manure. I can check with my friend, but I don't think she would have any problem with you meeting me at the barn and filling some bags with "equine organics" !! Of course, I would like to wait until the weather breaks, but if you bring the bags, I'll gladly help you fill them up. Shoveling horse poop is kind of second nature for me...[​IMG] Don't pay for it, because unless you're looking for some enormous amount, you can just get it from us for free. If you're interested and need more, let me know and I'll check with my friend.

    With regard to the Del babies....THANK YOU! We'll hope for some pullets. When you get a chance, share some pics, please... [​IMG] Still planning on getting them some time in mid to late April and hope this works out OK for you. We made more progress on the coop today. Actually got a some of the walls framed. I am NOT a natural at drilling, but I'm trying hard! Hubby has been patient.

    Sounds like we both covet Buckeyes. [​IMG]

    Just as an FYI I was at the Glenmont TSC today (did not buy any chicks, all they had were New Hampshire Reds). Anyway...they are getting a shipment of chicks in tomorrow so if you're looking for anything in particular you may want to give them a call.

    In other news it looks like my 2 roo's are starting to go at it more regularly now...they never seemed to have a problem before since one is a bantam (sebright) and the other is a big buff orp. I hope I wont be re-homing or processing a roo this spring.
